Hi Everyone,
I am soon to come into possession of not only my first Pontiac but, my first Fiero.
Living in the UK, Ive always loved U.S cars and have during my time owned, Mustangs, Camaros, Plymouths and a Chrysler Daytona.
Anyway the Fiero has been in a barn for many years and was up for sale on a website. Having given up on my Ford Thunderbird I decided to purchase the Fiero. I'm relishing the prospect of working though it. Ill be soon posting pics and asking a ton of questions as soon as its delivered !!

Congrats!!! Welcome to the madness that comes with these two seat demons. There will be days when you look at the car with loving eyes and days you have to put the hammer down before more stuff gets broken. The are an absolute blast to drive so stick with it when it gets tough. You will be rewarded with a beautiful day of driving in the end.

Thanks for the welcome.... until it arrives I cant really tell you much about it. Its a 2.8 auto fastback. It was imported in 1995 to the UK and given a "C" registration by the DVLA which would mean the car was built between 1985-86. It was bought by the current owner as a parts car but, sat there for 5 odd years. He does have two others and decided to move this one. It is complete but, will need going through top to bottom to get it fit for the road. But, hey thats what I enjoy doing having restored an 71 Satellite, 85 Camaro, 71 Beetle and recently a 91 Scirocco GT2.
Cant wait to start..... shame the winters here !!!

Hopefully it wasn't bought as a "parts car" due to the rear upper frame rails being rusted away. You'll need to give it a thorough lookin' over before investing time and money into it... but it sounds like you've had plenty of practice with other old cars!

Since you're brand new to Fieros, it might be worthwhile for you to view this video... just in case!
